    Right now, I have no idea what I should do after A-levels but this are the selections I've decided on. Which one should I pick?

    Maths, Psychology, Chemistry, Law

    or

    Maths, Psychology, Biology, Economics?

    Which one would give me a better advantage? And what kind of careers would be open to me with this choices?

    Do you have any idea what you want to do at uni?

    I would generally go for economics instead of law, even if you want to do Law at uni (lots of them dont want A level law). I do biology and chemistry, chemistry is more difficult but more highly regarded by unis and employers, you may not enjoy it that much if you dont specifically want to go into it though. It really depends what you want to do after A levels, its hard to say otherwise. I'd do -

    Maths, psychology, chemistry, economics

    I'd advise against law, from what I gather it's not really helpful for anything (especially law, believe it or not - people have been rejected for studying law because they took it at a-level). Personally, out of those options I'd go for Maths,Chemistry, Biology and Economics, Biology and Chemistry a-levels are generally more respected than Psychology and could potentially open more doors for you (not 100% sure on that one as I've never studied Psychology though - but from what I gather the a-level is generally just absorbing knowledge without developing any skills other than for arguments sake essay writing, which economics will give you anyway). So yeah those are my thoughts but at the end of the day it depends what you need for a career that you may have in mind and what you enjoy!

    I'd go for the second option of maths, biology, economics and a subject other than psychology. This subject choice can give you a wide range of career options from economics, medicine, maths (if you choose further maths) etc. For the last subject you've got to look at where you most want to end up. Maths degree, pick further maths. Medicine, them chemistry. Or even look at humanities such as geography and history. Make sure you keep to traditional subjects and have an Idea of where you want to end up.
